With the lower research requirements, I kind of liked the RPG-like system Thaumcraft unintentionally fostered. My girlfriend concentrated on Golemancy and Artifice, whilst I concentrated on Auramancy and Infusion. I don't know how it could be done, but I think the ability to specialise could really add some interesting gameplay.
Also I'm sure it's been said before, but I don't feel there's much point to using any other kind of magic form except for bolt (touch is useful for mining though). Projectile is too slow to really make use of the longer range it has, especially with how much it is affected by gravity, and touch isn't that much stronger, so it's better to use a vanilla melee tool.
Really loving those mod though, it has so many changes I love whilst keeping the core Thaumcraft elements that is the main reason I play Minecraft.
Whilst I did come here to find out if you'd be creating a Thaumcraft 6 update for Automagy, I fully look forward to this standalone mod Automagy – especially the Inventarium – has always been a bit too impressive to stay in the shadow of Thaumcraft, as beautiful as its integration was, further cementing my desire to only play Minecraft with Thaumcraft installed.
For some reason, my game has started crashing upon opening the backpack and moving items in and out of its inventory. This seems to occur regardless of whether it was right clicked in the hot bar or right clicked in the inventory.
If it has any relevance, I'm generally moving phials (on one occasion, jars) from Thaumcraft when it causes the crash. On version 1.7.10.
If this isn't where I'm supposed to report bugs, please redirect me and I'll post there.
Azanor said before that Gauntlets with no internal storage would make the Vis Stone and Vis Storage Amulet more useful, and I agree. They never really were used by me at least, seeming to be redundant compared to having a few extra wands (which I always have leftover after I upgrade to a new one) and took up the spot I needed for Runic Shield, so I like the idea of having to rely on a limit storage when in the outer lands.
